Played for at least two centuries, with roots stretching back into the Middle Ages, rugby remains a rough sport played by rugged men. Nearly 300 remarkable black-and-white photographs present the early days of the sport as most have never seen it. Images capture supporters making their way to the match, field workers preparing the pitch, action shots of such legendary players as Bill Beaumont and Cec Ryan, and teams including South Africa's famed Springboks. Both amateur and professional rugby is featured, with photographs documenting the frenzied tries and brutal scrums, as well as famed stadiums including England's Wembley and Leytonstone.
